I installed CentOs on a brand new Dell Lattitude E5430.
I did a minimal install, then did a "yum groupinstall Desktop" and I
Also, I installed a i686 CentOs on a 64bit system, thinking because it
has 4Gb or ram, It makes no difference.
The screen is split top to bottom on the left hand side.
This was quickly solved by adding "nomodeset" to the kernel line in
however now I can't add an external monitor or beamer.
Next I ran " Xorg -configure" and switched between vesa and intel
driver, but the only thing that clears the spit screen so far is nomodeset.
Here is some hardware info:
description: VGA compatible controller
product: 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated
vendor: Intel Corporation
physical id: 2
bus info: pci at 0000:00:02.0
width: 64 bits
capabilities: msi pm vga_controller bus_master cap_list rom

I googled this and found some posts ( not with Centos ) from people
reporting this solved by updating BIOS and adapting all sorts of settings.
Can anyone help me with this?
Many thanks already.
